Minimalist interior design has been strongly influenced by traditional Japanese design and architecture. However, the ideas of clear lines and simplification of space were first defined by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), who adopted the motto “less is more” to describe his aesthetic. This motto is obviously very applicable to the philosophy of today’s minimalist style. The concept of minimalist architecture is to reduce everything to its essential quality and achieve simplicity.
Japanese minimalist architect Tadao Ando transmits the traditional Japanese spirit and his own perception of nature in his work. It generally uses concrete or natural wood and a basic structural form to carry out austerity measures. It also creates a dialogue between place and nature in order to establish a relationship with the building
Minimalist Interior Design
The interior does not try to hide or separate the rooms, but to unite and embrace them. There is usually a lot of empty space in the room, the furniture is either built-in or freestanding. Sofas and coffee tables are usually in the middle of the room, separated from the walls. Large windows without curtains. Very often there are benches under the window in bedrooms and living rooms. These benches are not only elegant and give them relaxing horizontal straight lines, but they also serve as storage.
Kitchen islands are common in the kitchen. In general, muted colors are the default setting for a room. Natural light is very much appreciated. For this reason, the windows are large and not covered with curtains. Many designers avoid direct light from the ceiling and insist on using floor and table lamps.
